Document Description
Various vegetation types serve as fuel for wildfires and can result in hotter and larger fires if left unmanaged. The Board recognizes the link between fuels management and fire protection across the SRA, and has the statutory responsibility to establish policy for wildland resources in the SRA. CAL FIRE has the responsibility for implementation of Board policy, and would implement the CalVTP, as evaluated in the upcoming PEIR. Responsible and trustee agencies will need to use the PEIR when considering permit issuance or other approvals for individual vegetation treatment projects conducted under the CalVTP PEIR.
